Online Courses

The Office of Water Programs offers fifteen online courses based on portions of several manuals. These courses provide an excellent option for continuing operators in need of additional coursework. Because each course presents material on a particular aspect of a water or wastewater system, operators can concentrate their studies on the subject areas related directly to their jobs.

Students will complete all coursework online in addition to using a companion course content CD. The final exam is completed online, allowing for instant grade results. Upon successful completion of the final exam, students will earn 1.8 CEUs for each completed course.

Please be sure you can meet the system requirements that will allow you to complete the course online.
